In addition there is a tiny but steady adsense flow and I sometimes link out to my larger sites to pass along pagerank.
I don't think I can do a 301 redirect with some kind of server side scripting.
Of course, when Yahoo finally shuts down the Geocities sites, you will lose the effect of the redirects, but it might give you a head-start whilst trying to get links updated to the new URLs.
I can't believe someone isn't scooping in to buy geocities. There's a crazy amount of incoming links and I am positive you can make a profit with ads
If Yahoo could not make money from it, then who else. I don't think goecity is viable business any more, it is so 90ish.
The same content on standalone domains does remarkably better that it did while on Geocities, in my experience.
The hidden gem in Geocities is found in its content which I'm surprised is unceremoniously going to be dumped. There are several geocities sites with content I'd love to purchase from their current owners but I can't find out who they are...
Besides, who besides webmasters really use DMOZ anymore. It once was the key to being indexed but not any longer.
